Racist LeBron James Artwork Sparks Controversy at School Art Show.

A racist poster comparing Lebron James to a monkey was somehow allowed to be shown at a New York school art show over the weekend, it has been reported.

New Hartford Central School District held its annual K-12 art show for students on Saturday.

But one submission crossed the line, as an advertisement for a fake cereal brand named ‘Monkey Premium’ featured a photo of James front and center.

The poster read, ‘Eat Monkeys, Jump Like Monkeys!’ alongside a photo of James going up for a dunk.

The piece of ‘art’ also told people that they would ‘jump 2-5 inches higher for about 2 hours after eating.’

t is disheartening that racist work was not only created, but then overlooked and allowed to be displayed,’ New Hartford superintendent Cosimo Tangorra Jr. said in a statement according to the Daily Sentinel, after the news was first reported by WIBX.

In a May 6 email to the community, Tangorra reportedly announced that an investigation had been opened into the incident.

According to the Daily Sentinel, Tangorra said the student had been contacted but couldn’t be identified publicly due to privacy reasons.

‘We understand that there are students, families, staff and community members who may not feel safe, accepted or welcome as a result of what transpired. Our school community deserves access to a supportive learning environment where everyone feels respected, included and safe,’ Tangorra said.

‘We have fallen short of that goal, and we must do better. As a district, we will continue working to ensure all students and their families feel valued, and it requires increased education, dialogue, and action from the entire school community.’
